I think I have seen the same or a similar problem after the upgrade to
12.04, but that was six months ago and I don't remember the solution.
IIRC it was something related to akonadi.
What happens if you logout and login again? Can't you get the same error
message again? Usually you can find a solution if you google the exact
wording of the error message.
Other than that, you could stop akonadi with the command
and then remove the kmail2 configuration file
"~/.kde/share/config/kmail2rc" and the akonadi configuration files
"~/.kde/share/config/akonadi*". Then you can hopefully start kmail2 with
a fresh configuration.
